Since RECA's founding in 1991, our annual Christmas in October project has served local community groups in need, contributing more than $2 million in cash and in-kind donations during the process. Christmas in October is RECA's largest philanthropic event and participating in the project is a great way to contribute to a worthy cause while networking and building lasting relationships with other RECA members.

Save the Date — Christmas in October 2018 — Saturday, October 27
For 2018, RECA has chosen to partner with the Austin Nature & Science Center (ANSC). Established in 1960, ANSC's mission is to provide hands-on educational exhibits and recreational activities that increase awareness and appreciation of the natural environment. The ANSC located in Zilker Park on the Zilker Nature Preserve and has both indoor and outdoor exhibits. The ANSC provides regular environmental science programs to schools and hosts homeschool groups, scout troops, family events, environmentally focused camps and adventure programs.
